Abstract Waterlogging and salinity in the Mediterranean climate of Western Australia (WA) have long been recognized as major constraints to the production of agricultural crops and pastures. While raised beds (RB) prevent waterlogging, the impact of RB on salinity is not known. Their impact on salinity was studied at 3 sites in the Wheatbelt of WA. The salinity dynamics was captured through frequent soil sampling. Two small trials with different mulches were also conducted to investigate… CONTINUE READING
